GN Bureau | August 20, 2015
In the age of sweeping security environment and women's safety concerns, anything that makes task easy is welcome. A new series of visual and thermal high-speed pan-tilt (PT) head network cameras for a range of light conditions and surveillance needs has been unveiled by Axis Communications.
The Swedish company announced today the dawn of AXIS Q86 PT Head Network Camera Series. The high-performance product line has both visual and thermal cameras.
It is extremely fast with pan-tilt capabilities, combined with low-light visual and thermal features. These kind of features make the cameras ideal for perimeter protection, border control and transportation monitoring.
The cameras have expanded range of vision and high precision image delivery.
“With the introduction of fast moving pan/tilt head cameras we offer operators managing perimeter protection and boarder surveillance a solution for covering large areas, reducing the number of cameras needed” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. This makes the product cost effective too.
“The PT head’s rapid movements of up to 100 degrees per second make video surveillance more efficient and secure and serves as a deterrent to potential intruders as well,” he said.
AXIS Q86 Network Camera Series consists of two visual models and two thermal models. The visual model AXIS Q8665-E PTZ Network Camera is most suitable in environments where there is ambient illumination during night time, such as in cities or highways where streetlights are present. For surveillance in complete darkness AXIS Q8665-LE PTZ Network Camera comes with integrated IR LED illuminators that can monitor a distance up to 150 meters (164 yd) from the camera, perfect for perimeters or fields.
The thermal models (AXIS Q8631-E/Q8632-E) can be used in complete darkness, for long-distance surveillance and in difficult weather conditions. They are the ideal choice when the installation of IR light is not feasible or recognition is required for distances of more than 150 m/164 yd.
Thermal imaging is well suited for monitoring critical infrastructure such as solar plants, data centers, nuclear stations and electrical substations, as well as transportation installations for highways, airfields and harbors. In addition, the long-range capabilities improve the security effectiveness for borders and perimeters.
For effective and long-term deployment in demanding conditions the visual cameras are equipped with a wiper to remove excess water or rain that impedes vision. In those places with high risk for dust, salt, sand and emission of soot from vehicles, a washer can clean the window of the cameras.
The new AXIS Q86 PT Head Network Camera Series will be available in Q3 2015.
